Issue 150 is the one-hundred and fiftieth issue of Image Comics' The Walking Dead and the sixth and final part of Volume 25: No Turning Back. It was published on January 13th, 2016.


The issue starts with Dwight leaving the Sanctuary with some residents looking on, including his former wife Sherry. He is followed by Laura, who Dwight assumes is coming to ask him to go back; however, she has decided to come with him.

Back in Alexandria, Eugene and Rick continue to talk about the formation of their new military. Eugene is pleased with Rick's idea since it will both appease the more blood-thirsty of them as well as giving the people something to rally behind, allowing them the time they'd need to figure out the best way to strike back at the Whisperers.

Leaving Eugene's house later that night, Rick is suddenly confronted and pushed to the ground by two hooded men. One of the hooded men proceeds to beat Rick and taunt him about his lacking leadership. Eventually his hood falls down, revealing him to be Morton Rose. He is soon told to stop by the other hooded man, who is revealed to be Vincent. He reminds Morton that they were only going to intimidate Rick. Morton tells him that it's to late for that now and since Rick has seen his face they have to kill him. Vincent won't have it and attacks Morton but is subdued. Morton then leans over Rick to grab his cane. Rick's head shoots up and bites into Morton's neck. Morton succumbs to blood loss and Rick falls to the ground unconscious. Vincent flees the scene in a state of panic.

At the Hilltop mansion, Andrea is walking the corridors and finds Carl in bed with Lydia, having sex. A stunned Andrea doesn't intervene and decides to walk off.

Presumably hours later Rick is found by Maggie who panics and takes him to Dr. Carson's house where he is surrounded by Jesus, Maggie, and Michonne. Rick tells Michonne to go find Vincent and she goes after him.

Rick walks outside to see his people while Maggie tries to convince him to go back in and get cleaned up and recover, but he is adamant and insists they see him in his current state.

Rick proceeds to speak in front of the gathered group of people and starts off by telling them that he was attacked last night by two of their own because he wasn't taking action fast enough. He affirms that maybe they're right and admits he's scared of going back to the way they things were before. He tells the crowd that he is sure they remember their own experiences of those earlier times as well and that he himself lost his wife, his child and so many friends he can't even remember them all. He insists they cannot return to those days and that as a leader his most important job is to make sure they move forward and not back. During this, Dwight and Laura arrives.

Rick continues by saying that his hesitance to strike back at the Whisperers with force stems from the fact that if they do so, they could be endangering everything they have managed to build and accomplished together, emphasizing that working together in a large group is what has kept them safe thus far. Finishing his speech, Rick tells them that in pursuing the safety they desired they have made themselves weak, and he has allowed it to happen. He announces that they will be forming a joint military between the communities. A force they can send in to handle the Whisperers and any other threat that arises.

Michonne arrives with Vincent and Rick asks her to bring him up to the podium. Vincent frantically tries to apologize but Rick cuts him off and goes on to publicly forgive him for his actions. He tells Vincent that it's time for them to come together and not tear themselves apart. Turning to the crowd again, Rick proclaims that this is not the time to fight their own, that evil looms large over them all and that they must come together to silence the whisperers once and for all. Rick's speech is received overwhelmingly positive by the crowd and they all start chanting: "Rick Grimes"

Down in the holding cells, Negan is seen smiling and says to himself, "'atta boy."
